SoVaNow.com / August 04, 2014
The Virginia Dixie Boys 14s all stars humbled Tennessee in their opening action at the World Series in Bossier City, La.

Virginia downed Tennessee, 11-1, on Saturday.

Tennessee scored one run in the third inning and held that lead until the bottom of the fifth.

At that point, Virginia woke up offensively.

Evan Irby cracked a three-run double with two outs. Scott Nester followed with an RBI single. After Josh Barker was hit by a pitch, Dawson Watts knocked in two runs with a single.

Virginia finished off the rally in the sixth, adding five more runs to end the game.

Irby led the attack with three hits. Watts, Lloyd, Brayden Moore, Will Scheier, Nester and Barker had one hit apiece.

Moore, Hunter Watts and Scheier pitched for Virginia. The pitchers allowed only one run on four hits with eight strikeouts and two walks.

Virginia was set to meet South Carolina Sunday at 4 pm.
